    Responsibility of man- Sovereignty of God

    God does the enabling according to scripture, this is absolutely true. John 6:44 No one can come to me unless the Father who sent me draws him. And I will raise him up on the last day. When a person is drawn to God, it is at that point they must humble themselves and cry out to Him for salvation. For some this happens quickly, others are more obstinate. Whether one reaches rock bottom before they humble themselves or not is entirely up to them, the Lord is patient. God bless
  10. Prior to the New Covenant you had the Old one, in which God compared His relationship with Israel to that of husband and wife. The Old Testament parallels the New, but the plan was always the same. As far as Jesus and the church as the Bride, it isn't a sort of reflection, it is exactly how it is defined in scripture. Ephesians 5:25 Husbands, love your wives, as Christ loved the church and gave himself up for her, 26 that he might sanctify her, having cleansed her by the washing of water with the word, 27 so that he might present the church to himself in splendor, without spot or wrinkle or any such thing, that she might be holy and without blemish. 28 In the same way husbands should love their wives as their own bodies. He who loves his wife loves himself. 29 For no one ever hated his own flesh, but nourishes and cherishes it, just as Christ does the church, 30 because we are members of his body. 31 “Therefore a man shall leave his father and mother and hold fast to his wife, and the two shall become one flesh.”32 This mystery is profound, and I am saying that it refers to Christ and the church.

    I can’t feel God’s forgiveness

    Marj, I think what you need to resolve is, are you currently doing God's will or your own. If we are not walking in the Spirit, then hearing Him is a bit more challenging. I am not going to beat you up, and I don't think you should beat yourself up either, but at some point you have to start submitting your life to the Lord. What you described above is not in line with how we are to live as Christians. It may not be what you want to hear, but it really is as simple as that. Hope this helps. God bless

    I don't know what to do

    Maybe what you need to do is start fresh, somewhere new, on your own. It sounds like your family is wearing you down, breaking away from them may be the best option, as scary as it seems.

    Investing.

    I have quite a bit invested myself, so sure. I think though, that it is important for people to understand the risk involved. It reminds me of something my dad taught me in my youth. If you are not willing to lose money, don't lend it, because you may not get it back. My investments are not for my benefit, the idea is to leave something behind for my daughter and grandsons, so when I am gone, I can still be of assistance.
  20. The issue you will run into here, is what one person deems intimate another may not. In areas like that, you could get a different response from each person you talk about with it. I think it comes down to personal conviction. For me personally, I know the difference between right and wrong, without question, following the proper path is entirely on me at that point. So for instance, my views are more in line with traditional courtships. You are interested in someone, so you let your intentions be known. You spend time with that individual, get to know them, and decide if this is an individual you can see a future with. If so, then you move forward, if not, then you part ways. I don't think showering someone with gifts is of any benefit long term, and I don't think physical contact leads to good decisions. Flattery also seems to go hand in hand with motives, but speaking from the heart is an expression of truth, so I see a distinction there.
